My first photo exhibition in Krakow

My Post (4).jpg

The works will showcase black and white images of People in the streets of Polish and European Cities.

As a part of Photo Month Krakow, this will be the first photo exhibition in the history of Mercure Kraków Old Town hotel which was opened 1,5 year ago. Those who know me, I am a passionate photographer that focuses not only his camera, lens, eye but above all my heart on Life of streets where I live, visit or simply am. And it has been for six years now.

I have found his passion for this type of photography during one-week workshop in Morocco which I attended in 2012. In addition, I used to live in London that time where the multicultural aspect of British Capital gave me a full spectrum to master my skills to capture this Decisive Moment. And again, those who know, my main inspiration comes mainly from well-known Henri Cartier-Bresson and Vivian Maier.

I can describe my work not only by black, grey and white colours but above all the uniqueness. I try to present People at the very candid moment that in many cases will not happen again. This will be my 4th exhibition (first in Krakow). I have showcased my photographs at The Camera Club as well as at Jealous Gallery in Shoreditch, London. Now, you have an opportunity to see my work at Mercure Kraków Old Town hotel.

The Private Viewing is scheduled for 1st June 2018 at 7.00pm. If you plan to attend, please let know here
The Exhibition ends 15th June 2018.

Calling all Street Photographers

Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.

Dear Colleagues, Street Photographers! 

It has come to my mind when I was approached by Sebastian to present his work on my website that I should invite all of you who wants to share your best images with me to promote this unique photo discipline. Thus, if you are interested and want to showcase your work, feel free to get in touch via any channel you prefer and I will be happy to share your art here with my audience! 

Look forward to hearing from you!

World Photo Day at AccorHotels in Krakow, Poland

When your work dovetails with the passion...or you share your passion with work...

As only I found about the role I hold at the moment, I instantly knew I would be able to use my photography skills, passion in my work but need to admit was not aware there will be so much involvement of it. And you know what... I really do not mind, even more, I love it. And I am not saying photo sessions for hotels which I cannot deliver but the chance to help the hotels with my own photography which I took over last years. And that moment has come quicker than I expected.

All mid-scale Accor hotels in Krakow celebrate the World Photo Day this week. Two Novotels and Mercure have special photography displays which are open to the public. Novotel Krakow City West has offered me kindly space in their lobby where some print outs are displayed. Mercure Krakow Old Town boasts a digital photo display on massive TV screens and finally, the lobby of Novotel Krakow Centrum is full of large boards with photographs taken by the artists gathered around IngersKrakow. So if you are around Krakow these coming days, pop into AccorHotels and see what is on. Do not hesitate to share your feedback. And do you plan to celebrate World Photo Day? If so, how? Let me know.

Till the next time,

Wojtek

A Unique Exhibition

Igerskrakow and Novotel Krakow Centrum hotel present... 

#NKCINSTAMEET

How all this started?

A few years ago, a great friend of mine from London Camera Club suggested to me I should have the exhibition. As the offer was tempting, I was not sure if it was a good idea. Now, I can say the decision to have my work displayed at one of the oldest photo clubs in London was one of the best decision I have ever taken. The excitement around the preparations, selections of photographs, editing, sending out invites and finally the very day – the Private Viewing when friends and office mates as well strangers start to walk into the gallery to see your work… Priceless feeling… 

When all comes back...

Must say, last week I felt a bit the same, a bit because the location is different; it is in Krakow, it is not my solo exhibition but with other talented photo artists and the venue – the hotel that I had the opportunity to open 15 (!!!) years ago also with many other great hotel professionals. 

Can you imagine your photo life without #Instagram? I cannot… I really got addicted to this social media channel a while ago. And if you know there are many others Instagramers who share the same passion, the life is more beautiful. It is #Igerskrakow who I want to tell you about; a group of amazing people, so talented who see the world around us the most often not only via their smartphone cameras but in many cases in a funny, unusual way. I had this privilege to be among three other judges who selected 100 photographs out of 502 which are on display at Novotel Krakow Centrum hotel until the end of August 2017. You can see their work that they took during the first ever #nkcinstameet that we organised during mid-May event but also other masterpieces of our city of Krakow. 

This is a unique exhibition – much different from many others that can be found Krakow – #Igerskrakow has never had their work displayed till now. If you are in Polish Royal City this summer, try to find some time and head on to Novotel. Walk around the lobby and see this stunning collection.

Appreciation...

Lastly, I would like to thank everybody who was involved in this amazing project. You have made my day, week, month – the ambition to bring the photography into one of the hotels that I work with and for.
